Why visit Queenstown
For many people, Queenstown's biggest draw is the plethora of adventure activities. Sky diving, ziplining, bungee jumping, white water rafting, and plenty more attract thrill-seekers to this New Zealand city. A popular reason to visit Queenstown, in particular, is because it has so many adrenaline-pumping activities so close together. Of course, there's more to Queenstown than the adrenaline. A booming city, Queenstown has fantastic dining and nightlife, as well as historic tours, stunning scenery, and locally-grown wine.
When to visit Queenstown
If you love skiing and snow sports, Queenstown is a great winter destination. There are several world-class ski fields close to the city, including Cardrona, Coronet Peak, Treble Cone, and The Remarkables. Also in the winter is Queenstown's Winter Festival, with events, music, and more to celebrate all there is to love about the snow season. For those who prefer a warmer getaway, Queenstown is fantastic in the summer, spring, and autumn. Alfresco dining and nightlife shine in the summer. The hiking and cycling trails will be waiting for you in the autumn. And who could turn down a picnic in one of Queenstown's beautiful parks? Like so many modern cities, Queenstown is a great destination to visit any time of the year.
Getting around Queenstown
Driving to and around Queenstown is always popular, thanks to the scenery just beyond your windows as you navigate the winding roads of New Zealand. Main roads are well-maintained and sign-posted, making getting around via car relatively easy. For those who don't or prefer to not drive, Queenstown and its surrounds are easily accessible via public transport. The public bus network links Queenstown's CBD to its outer suburbs. There are also several shuttle services to help you reach some of Queenstown's famous attractions, like the historic Arrowtown.

Things to do in Queenstown
Known to many as the "adventure capital of the world," Queenstown has it all. Whether bungee jumping off Kawarau Bridge, snowboarding at Coronet Peak, or resting your weary bones at the Onsen Hot Pools, Queenstown has something for everyone. Start your trip with an adrenaline-pumping ski session at The Remarkables mountain range, where you'll find the fastest slopes and the most picturesque view. Afterwards, to regulate your heartbeat, take a leisurely stroll through the Queenstown Gardens—an oasis so scenic and relaxing that you'll forget you're in the city's heart. Take the path over to Marine Parade on Queenstown Beach, where you can grab a bite at the famous Bathhouse Café. If you still need more adventure, take a jump via bungee at Nevis Bungy Jump—the world's biggest rope swing, or visit Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge, known as the birthplace of bungee jumping. After all that, you'll deserve a glass of wine (or two!), so head on over to Gibbston Valley Wine Cave and try the region's famous Pinot Noir.
